CHIPMUNKS

These cute, reddish brown little critters are very active as they scamper about your yard and garden. If you look close enough, they almost seem to have a mischievous twinkle in their eyes.   

Habitat & Habits
Chipmunks live in underground nests near walls, rock piles or under tree roots or stumps. Their most familiar habit is gathering and burying nuts for the winter.

Bad Points
 Despite their cuteness, chipmunks can be destructive as heck in the garden. They unearth everything—squash, cukes and melon seeds, bulbs, and young plants. From there, they daintily sample strawberries, vegetables, bulbs, and tomatoes. They can also wreak havoc under porches, stairs, crawl spaces, etc.

Favorite Foods
 Although they are notorious for stealing bulbs and corn seed, they feed mostly on nuts, grains, wild fruits, and berries, and an occasional small bird, mouse, snake, snail or grasshopper.
